Anna Gunn, best known by Free Frank Gable site visitors for her portrayal of Elizabeth Godlove in the movie "Without Evidence," stars as Skyler White in the new AMC original series "Breaking Bad."
Breaking Bad follows protagonist Walter White (Bryan Cranston), a chemistry teacher who lives in New Mexico with his wife (Anna Gunn) and teenage son (RJ Mitte) who has cerebral palsy. White is diagnosed with Stage III cancer and given a prognosis of two years left to live. With a new sense of fearlessness based on his medical prognosis, and a desire to secure his family’s financial security, White chooses to cook meth and enter a dangerous world of drugs and crime, and ascends to power in this world. The series explores how a fatal diagnosis such as White’s releases a typical man from the daily concerns and constraints of normal society and follows his transformation from mild family man to a kingpin of the drug trade.
The second season premier episode airs Sunday night, March 8 at 10pm eastern time. You can view first season episodes at their website, and be sure to check out "Walt’s Warning" while you’re there. Pretty cool!

"The idea that God is an oversized white male with a flowing beard who sits in the sky and tallies the fall of every sparrow is ludicrous. But if by ‘God’ one means the set of physical laws that govern the universe, then clearly there is such a God. This God is emotionally unsatisfying… it does not make much sense to pray to the law of gravity."
— Carl Sagan
